We are thrilled to host the SPRE Summit at the McGregor Memorial Conference Center at Wayne State University. We made the choice to host the SPRE Summit here because not only is it a Detroit institution, but also is a big supporter of community driven, community serving spaces, and we are very excited to partner with them. It is a publicly funded university and resources and accommodations are typical of US universities.
We have two room blocks for the conference – Cambria Hotel Downtown Detroit & Doubletree Suites Detroit Downtown – located right next to each other. Wayne State University is located in Midtown Detroit, and the hotel infrastructure for the city is in Downtown Detroit. Since these are different neighborhoods, the hotels are not walkable to the conference venue. Transportation options between the hotels and conference venue will include limited complimentary buses, a short uber/lyft or taxi ride, or a free public transportation ride on Detroit’s Q line.
